Dutch culture is well represented at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, ranging from VR experiences about forbidden love, to documenting a musical comeback of an R&B singer who rose to the top in the 1990s to explaining how a presumed flop about a showgirl became a cult phenomenon.
Dutch director Carine Bijlsma will premier her feature-length documentary film Devil’s Pie – D’Angelo at Tribeca Film Festival 2019. The documentary centres around R&B singer D’Angelo who had it all: two platinum-selling albums, a sold-out world tour and a body chiselled to perfection. However, one day at the height of his career in 2000 the soul singer vanished. For 12 years he descended into darkness. Out of nowhere, in December 2014, his third album Black Messiah was suddenly released: soundtrack of the lost years.
